The annual John Garnett Lecture honours the legacy of Professor John Garnett as the first academic in the field of Strategic Studies worldwide. Professor Garnett pioneered Strategic Studies as an academic field at the University of Aberystwyth, the first UK institution to offer it as an undergraduate and postgraduate course. Professor Garnett’s expertise was also much in demand outside the academic community, and he was an academic consultant at the Joint Services Defence College, a member of the Council of the Royal United Services Institute, a member of the Foreign Office Advisory Panel on Arms Control and the British Representative on the United Nations Advisory Board on Disarmament.
